Re: Making .270 out of 30-06 brass?

Thanks. I currently have the expander button out of the die. It seems to work well like that. Should I put it back in?

Also do you think I would gain any accuracy from using the re-sized Lapua brass compared to 270 Norma or Nosler brass?

Stalker, I doubt that the Lapua brass will make your gun more accurate than the others mentioned but it will most likely last a lot longer if you're shooting fairly hot loads. Lapua brass is known for keeping primer pockets tight much longer !! --- RHB ---( PM sent )

Found some old lake city brass. Has anyone had good luck resizing it for 270 win? Any reports on issues with performance?

Half of my 270 brass has an '06 headstamp. When using re-formed mil brass be aware of volume issues(casued by heavier case wall construction) with mil- brass and the fact you may need to remove the crimp. Personally I'd use either factory 270 or "06 brass unless I had a bunch(enough for the life of the rifle) of the lc brass.

I've shot hundreds of rounds in my 270's with '06 stamped rounds. They are fine.

Simply run the 30/06 brass through the standard 270 dies with the expander ball where it
normally is in the 270 set up. All of the sizing you want is just enough to chamber in your
270, no more.

You will see a small ring at the base of the neck. (This is good) where it is still 30 caliber. this helps set the head space and minimizes brass stretch durring fire forming.

There should be no need to turn the necks unless a loaded round is less than .004 larger than the outside
of a fired round.
